Love Actually gets sequel as a short film

Love Actually is getting a sequel of sorts 14 years later: a short film by the original's writer-director, Richard Curtis, starring many of the original cast members.

The film is being made for Comic Relief's Red Nose Day, which raises money to fight poverty.

It will be broadcast in Britain on BBC One on March 24 and in the United States on NBC on May 25.


Dr Luke criticised Kesha's weight

Music producer Dr Luke said in 2012 that musicians were unwilling to give pop singer Kesha their songs because of her weight, according to court documents filed this week in New York. Kesha, 29, is involved in a battle to get out of a recording deal with Sony Music and Dr Luke.

Documents filed in court showed an e-mail chain between Kesha's manager, Ms Monica Cornia, and Dr Luke, in which he chastised the singer for breaking her juice diet by drinking soda and eating turkey.
